Part 5 – Peggy’s Cove – Nova Scotia
(30 minutes go by) ….oops, sorry. I was thinking about this place and how much I want to go back there to spend more time.
Our port of call was Halifax, Nova Scotia. We decided to take the excursion Peggy’s Cove and the Titanic. I’ll post Titanic pictures separately. I’m trying to figure out where to start with this journey back in time. The drive to Peggy’s Cove took about 30-45 mins so the only unfortunate part of this excursion is we didn’t get to spend enough time exploring.
The drive to Peggy’s Cove is a two lane road and there are bodies of water that were formed by glaciers. At the end of the two lane road, on the Chebucto Penninsula is the tiny village of Peggy’s Cove with it’s iconic lighthouse. There is a population of 35 souls in Peggy’s Cove. The only form of income comes from fishing/lobstering and tourism. The bus pulled up behind the Peggy’s Cove restaurant and gift shop. The excursion was from 1pm-5:30pm so we were very hungry. We headed on into the restaurant and Dan got..wait for it…a lobster roll! I got fish and chips. It was delicious. Best fish and chips ever. This place is a hole in the wall but don’t let it fool you. Visit and eat!
As soon as we finished eating we hurried out to enjoy the scenery. This lighthouse is what I see in my mind when I think lighthouse. It’s gorgeous. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get the perfect shot of the lighthouse because there were too many people milling around it. We tried to capture, in pictures, as much of the flavor of Peggy’s Cove as we possibly could.
I think I’ll let the pictures do the talking for me 🙂
